Crafty Creations Challenge/ABC Challenge-Garden Card
Today's card is for the Crafty Creations Challenge and the ABC Challenge. The Crafty Creations challenge is themed "to see how your garden grows". This can range from what you would find in it, tools, scene, or anything garden. There is a prize of products from CTMH. The stamp set is the current stamp of the month- Tender Tags. The papers is a sampling 6x6 assortment of their current sets. For the ABC Challenge you are to do a card with a summer theme. I don't believe they have a prize this week. It's a great theme for both challenges, so come join the fun
This card was made with Hero Arts-Birdhouse village stamp. I colored it with pencils and blended with baby oil. The paper is from the "Citrus" Stack. I stamped my image, 3 times on white paper, cut with the square set of spellbinders nesties, and mounted different portions on the image to give it a 3-d effect. I stickled all the ivy, and just the border of the birdhouses and the scallop border around the whole image. The double fence is a Martha Stewart border punch-I used two pieces and I punched all the flowers with a collection of different flower punches I have. I placed rhinestones in the middle of the flowers and stickled them. I used the Martha Stewart Frond punch for the leaves. Spellbinders tag die was used for the tag.
Remember yesterday about the 50-60 mile an hour winds. Well my husband built me a bird condo like this and those winds wiped some of it out yesterday. He is going to have to fix it this weekend and put it back up in our yard. This card looks like our back yard. lol Thanks for stopping by.
